The 2030 Sustainability and Net Zero Agenda

The 193 member states of the UN approved The 2030 Sustainability and Net Zero Agenda, an ambitious plan that sets out to achieve prosperity that is respectful of the planet and its inhabitants.

In 2015, the United Nations General Assembly created a collection of 17 interlinked global goals designed to be a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all”.

These 17 goals are called The Sustainable Development Goals, or SDG's, and collectively are known as The 2030 Sustainable and Net Zero Agenda.

The 2030 Sustainable and Net Zero Agenda is a global framework of action for people, planet, prosperity, peace, and partnership. It integrates social, economic, and environmental dimensions of sustainable development, as well as peace, governance and justice elements.

The 17 SDGs

The SDGs were made more "actionable" by a UN Resolution that identifies specific targets for each goal, along with indicators that are being used to measure progress toward each target.
